Jennifer Hudson's Whitney Houston Tribute at Grammys - Watch Now!

Jennifer Hudson looks absolutely stunning on stage at the 2012 Grammy Awards held at Staples Center on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles.

The 30-year-old singer performed a sweet and simple rendition of the classic song “I Will Always Love You” in a tribute to the late singer Whitney Houston.

It was announced last night shortly after Whitney‘s death that Jennifer would perform a tribute performance during the Grammys.

Jennifer‘s performance followed an In Memoriam segment that honored such talents as Amy Winehouse, Clarence Clemons, and Steve Jobs.

    The tribute on BET was much more lively and strong. But this night wasn’t about proving how well she can sing. It was a polite tribute.

    Why did she sing THAT song? THAT is Dolly Parton’s signature song NOT Whitney’s!!!
    Jennifer should have sang a Whitney song! That was stupid!

    Haha. Okay, y’all are haters. And really. Why would you lump JayZ in with people that actually have singing voices? I wouldn’t exactly call 99 problems, but a ***** aint 1 a greatest hit. Shame..

    Considering they added this tribute to the show this morning, Jennifer did an awesome job. Have I heard her sing better? Yes, but given Whitney died YESTERDAY and JH wasn’t even in the lineup to perform until today, she did much better than a lot of people would or could do in her position.

    No one sounds like Whitney – that’s why she was loved. Jennifer did what she intended, she used her beautiful voice to pay tribute to her idol.

    @Paula: Whitney’s version of that song surpassed Dolly’s original in popularity. It became a signature Whitney Houston song. Dolly Parton has acknowledged that herself.

    @Try: Exactly, this was not the time for JHud to show she can hit every note – it was a farewell to her idol.

    Jennifer is a remarkable talent and to take on such a tribute with only 24 hr prep, shows only that she is a true STAR!!!!!!!

    Toni Says:

    I wish we could hear other Whitney songs as tributes. I mean I Will Always Love You is her biggest hit, but she has so many others too that I would like to hear. Like I believe in you or Exhale or Saving All my love or you give good love for example.

    Whitney Houston was a beautiful artist and had a beautiful voice. However; Jennifer Hudson did an absolute AWESOME job last night on the Grammy’s. I literally sat and cried while she was singing.

    Keep up the GREAT work Jennifer!!

    carolyn carter Says:

    The grammy’s was missing a lot of performances, Charley Wilson,Usher, Kelly Price, R Kelly, etc. It was BORING and too long. I didn’t see the musical tribute to Whitney, but once I do, I will give my opinion.

    Robert Says:

    I once sang at the funeral of a young woman who had been attacked, raped and murdered while jogging. While I sang, I could not look at her white coffin or I would have lost it all. It’s difficult. As hard as you might, you have to look somewhere else for a focus. We will all miss Whitney Houston and I’m glad Jennifer could get through this tribute.
